As a military family, we've lived in a few different places over the last 12 years. We've got a little stability here at Fort Bragg, so we've done a lot to make this place our home. We are active community volunteers, we bought a house, and we found a home church. And I LOVE our home church.
We attend Spout Springs Church. Steve Davis is the Pastor at SSC and quite possibly one of the best pastors I've ever heard...and I've heard a lot. In fact, if you are interested in hearing what he has to say, you should check out a sermon as they are posted online weekly. And because Pastor Steve is pretty awesome, he wrote a book (he's actually written several). His newest book is about understanding what your faith means to YOU. It's really deciphering your faith and your relationship with God, not what you think it is or should be or what your parents or pastors relationships are with God. The book is called Faith: In Your Own Handwriting.
In this new year, SSC is hoping to have as many people as possible attend a Handwriting Connection Group. And I'm hosting one! What does that mean? Well, let me tell you!
Each week, we'll get together, read a chapter of the book, watch a video, and have a discussion. That's it. Super easy. And if you are local to me (and you'll know if you are), I'm inviting you to this connection group. It's a women's group (sorry, fellas!) and will last about 9 weeks. In fact, let me give you a simple rundown below.
What: Faith: In Your Own Handwriting Connection Group
Where: My house!
When: Monday nights from 7:00 - 8:00 pm, starting on January 11, 2016.
Who: YOU! You are invited! Neighbors, friends, Scout moms, friends of friends, just ladies that can get to my house.
Why: If you are even the tiniest bit interested in growing in and having a deeper understanding of your relationship with God, then this is for you.
Ok, Nicole, I'm intrigued. What do I have to do?
Just show up! You can message me and let me know or just show up. You are welcome here!
But, I don't attend Spout Springs Church.
You don't have to!! You are welcome whether you've been to church or never been to church...whether that be SSC or any other church.
Please come. If you are even remotely interested, please come over and embark on this journey. Honestly, I haven't read the book yet (ok, so I've read a few pages), because I want to read along with the rest of the group, but I listen to Steve nearly every week and he always takes me a bit deeper in my relationship with God.
Ok, if you have questions, please let me know! You can comment here or for the sake of privacy, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or comment on my facebook post and say, "Nicole, I'm in!!"
